The new cards make it possible to continue enjoying your favorite films and series without needing to upgrade to full Netflix membership. Available at participating retailers, the cards are available in £15, £25 and £50 denominations, and can be redeemed via a code located at the back of each card.
The cards themselves can be deployed and used on SD, HD and 4K content. The remaining credit on the gift cards after use can only be used to top-up an account. It's a neat option for those who would rather enjoy content and not be tied into the subscription.
As noted already, the Netflix gift cards can be purchased at various UK retailers including Argos, Currys, PC World, WH Smith, GAME, Morrison's, Tesco and Asda.

I wonder what comes out cheaper if you mostly only watch TV Shows on Netflix
You are hardly 'tied into a subscription' using the standard service. It is a 1 month rolling contract, that can be cancelled at any time...
Gift cards are pointless in this instance.
Sometimes people forget to cancel :P.
Also available in the Netherlands as of today: 15, 25 and 50 euro gift cards at various retailers (Dixons, Media Markt, MyCom, Albert Hein, Jumbo, etc.)
Don't see the point as you can cancel a Netflix account anytime, it's a rolling one month at a time sign up service.
Hunh? But you aren't tied into a subscription. You can cancel anytime you want. No contract. No ties. It seems expensive with the card. What's the point ?
